I am new to WP (trying to help my partner), and looking for an easy to use theme that kind of looks like what I have at pritaeas.net. Basically I want the homepage to feature images (text optional) pointing to a section on the website. I have been searching but there is so much out there, I have no idea where to start or what keywords to use when searching.
Basically you are building Google Alerts, but for more sources and with more restrictions. You'll need to integrate with news sources, or search engine APIs to extract the information you'd want to see. You need to build a service type application that runs daily and intelligently.
Is this technically feasible to do?
who is the type of person that can do it?
IMO you'll need a software engineer and a data analist.
The last unanswered, from 6 hours ago (as of this writing) is hardly something to worry about. It might be urgent for you, but everyone here has stuff to do and devote their free time answering. So be a little patient.
